Grandma said at times you’ll feel a sting
There’ll be sharp turns and uphills and closed doors
Then she said hold onto your faith
‘Cause in this world you’ve got to go and get yours

So you stand up
Be strong
Go out there
Hold on to the real things that matter
‘Cause no one’s gonna hand it to you on a silver platter

from “Brother Sister” by The Brand New Heavies
